Feeding Tube Is In!!!

Rich went to his rescheduled appointment today and the feeding tube is in!!!

Thank you, Prayer Warriors!!!

Not only is it in but they did not have to use the scope and camera.!!! I was astonished.  Since his esophagus droops below the opening to his stomach I thought there was no way they would get it in without a scope.  And the doctor thought they might not be able to do it even with the scope.

But it's in.  The procedure was not too bad, according to Rich.

Angels must have been guiding that tube.  Now he's all fired up to gain some weight and do some moderate exercise to strengthen himself for surgery on the 24th!!!  

Thanks be to God the Great Physician!!!

Thank you all for your prayers and your support!!
